A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the Sanday Soulka Weekends throughout 2018. We hope you all enjoyed the three weekends as much as we did.
We are busy beavering away with planning well underway for 2019. Please keep an eye out on here or our Facebook page for up-to-date news and of course the weekend dates once they are finalised.
Soulka..... the meaning :
A word recorded by Jakob Jakobsen, the Faroese scholar who visited Orkney to collect words over a hundred years ago. It is listed in Gregor Lamb’s book ‘Hid kam intae words’, where the meaning is given as ‘the circle of the horizon as far as can be seen’. We have extended this meaning to include our cultural as well as geographical horizon.
